Well, I am looking for an Ibanez guitar. Why? I've heard great things about the wizard neck, and Ibanez in general. Now, where I'm torn between, is whether to get one with a fixed bridge or not.

If I don't go with a fixed bridge, then I will most definitely try to track down an RG550(from the 80s or so, not a reissue if i can help it). But what I want to know is how much of a pain is it to change the strings? I've heard many people say it's just annoying (I've never used a guitar with locking nuts, etc). But is it enough of a pain to consider NOT buying it and instead going for a fixed bridge?

I plan on staying in standard tuning, maybe switch to Drop D every now and then. So if I don't go with the RG550, it's more or less likely I will get a 200-400 dollar Ibanez with a fixed bridge.

Also, if you need some background info: I play all styles of music (pretty much). I have 3 other guitars (2 electrics 1 acoustic).
This is my signature... And yes this is the most original thing... ever.
